Actor Radha Ravi, who is a member of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), has been campaigning for the BJP and AIADMK alliance in the upcoming Tamil Nadu Assembly Elections, which is all set to happen on April 6. While campaigning, he spoke about Nayanthara and shamed her. Two years ago, Radha Ravi spoke ill of Nayanthara at a movie promotional event and earned the wrath of the netizens. Following severe backlash, Radha Ravi was temporarily dismissed from Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK). Radha Ravi took offence and quit DMK and joined BJP. Now, he has yet again spoke about the controversy.
While addressing the gathering, Radha Ravi said, "Who is Nayanthara to DMK? Is she DMK's public relations officer? Why do they have to dismiss me if I talk about her? Before they could come up with the order, I tendered my permanent resignation. If she is in a relationship with Udhayanidhi Stalin, what can I do?" Radha Ravi's remarks did not go down well with netizens. Chinmayi also reacted to his speech and wrote, "onestly I am sick and tired of this man and his abuse. This man is openly abusive, a molester, a harasser!! Why would a party hire him as a star campaigner? DMK's A Raja or Radha Ravi - they’re all the same kinda abusive men that we have voted for and made powerful (sic)."
